The six-month-old male husky had become trapped by his jaw
A husky had to be rescued by firefighters after it trapped its head in a brick wall.

The six-month-old male husky, called Keano, had become trapped by his jaw in a garden in Whitchurch, Hampshire, on Friday afternoon.

A neighbour alerted the dog's owner, who found Keano's head stuck in the ornamental brick wall and called in Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.

A chisel was used to chip off part of the wall that was trapping the dog.

Rural safety officer Anton Phillips said: "This was quite an unusual call and the owner did a great job in keeping her pet as calm as possible before I got there.

"Without the owner's patience and ability to keep the dog quiet, this could have resulted in a much worse scenario for Keano."
